    The process does work! I've had some major ah ha moments and gained an understanding of myself and the things that have happened to me, like never before. I struggled at first but then I basically told my brain to just be quiet and I quit trying to connect the dots between my purpose, my mission and my art.

You do not need to create a cohesive "body of work" before you apply.

Knowing your unique value proposition and target market will inspire you to create with focused confidence.

Because by finding your own rhythm and pace you will become more focused, productive, and self-confident. Your “Study Partners” can help you remain accountable.

My students determine their own schedule by:

  1. examining their existing commitments and energy level and making an honest assessment
